Video: Landing where nobody has before

Not all airplanes need a runway to land, as this incredible video shows. Ride along with Trent Palmer in his experimental taildragger as he creates his own landing strip on a ridge in northern Nevada. While you shouldn’t try this in your Cherokee, it does show the freedom and excitement that comes with a Private Pilot certificate.

Video from Trent Palmer.
